Exploring the Culinary Scene ─ How to Start Your Food Tour in Las Vegas

Looking for what to have for lunch or dinner? Some options to start your course are:

Pastrami Burger

As the name suggests (though it was initially called The Mayor of Flavortown Burger), this is your classical hamburger, but it adds pastrami (strips of smoked meat) topping. While it is widely famous in Utah and Nevada, some of the most renowned restaurants to find it are Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar and Smmy’s L.A. Pastrami & Burgers.

Spicy Shrimp


One of Las Vegas’ examples of its love for seafood is that this dish is served in many different ways (some choose it fried), and its variety and grade of “spiciness” may change according to the restaurant it is served in. You can try it in places like Oyster Bar Holy Shrimp, a compulsory stop for your food tour in Las Vegas.

Miso-Glazed Chilean Sea Bass

This plate combines Nevada’s love for seafood and foreign culinary traditions, for it gained notoriety due to its presentation at TAO Asian Bistro. This restaurant also focuses on Japanese, Chinese, and Thai cuisine.

Seared (fried yet juicy) and accompanied by a miso glaze (a sauce consisting of various items) on a cushion of vegetables, this sea bass combines intense and spice flavors in a single bite.

Beef Wellington

Mushroom paste and puff pastry wrapping join the filet mignon in this dish, coined by Ramsay and made famous by the Hell’s Kitchen challenges. Easy enough to find, it is available on Hell’s Kitchen’s menu.

Sushi Cupcakes

Plates like this show how the fun, original aspects of the city’s everyday life translate into its culinary world. Wrapped in a crispy wonton as a shell, the cupcakes rest on the base of white rice and can come in various ways, from spicy surimi crab or tuna to smoked salmon.

Four of these delicacies make an order at Jaburritos, the restaurant that created them and the birthplace of the sushi burrito.

Trash Can Nachos

While being served in, as the name suggests, a trash can (a mini metal bin) may seem excessive, customers must take into account the number of toppings these nachos have, from corn tortilla chips to black beans, without missing out on pico de gallo, cheese, jalapenos, crema, pickled onions, and cilantro, among others.

You can find this famous Las Vegas dish in Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar.

High Roller

Served in Cafe Hollywood, in the shape of a mini Ferris wheel that takes after the High Roller Ferris Wheel, this is a five-in-one plate, for it includes five of the most renowned appetizers in Las Vegas: shrimp tempura, spinach, and artichoke dip, buffalo wings, Cap’n Crunch and barbecue chicken tostadas.

Belly of The Beast Burger

Another widely known hamburger, this Truffles N Bacon iconic dish, has gained popularity due to its weight reaching ten pounds. That includes two patties of 2 pounds each, cheddar, jalapenos, tomatoes, pork belly, ranch, and barbecue sauce.

L.A. Lasagna


Another of Cafe Hollywood’s famous plates, this lasagna, looks like a sandwich in which noodles are stuffed with ricotta and Bolognese and covered with garlic sauce.

Macaroni and Cheese Carbonara

Going into the Italian recipes with an American twist, the traditional dish made out of egg, cheese, cured pork, and black pepper adds to its mac-and-cheese creaminess when prepared with pancetta and smoked mozzarella and fontina, as Buddy Valastro, in Buddy V’s Ristorante, proves.

Street Corn

A glimpse of the impact of Mexican cuisine on the Los Angeles culinary landscape, this dish was inspired by the elite and was required for customers looking for something with Hot Cheetos’ spicy taste. This Dirty Dog’s creation consists of a grilled ear covered in butter, melted cheese, lime mayo sauce, cilantro, and, most importantly, crushed Hot Cheetos.

Experiencing Las Vegas Beyond the Glitter ─ A Guide to Unique Sweet Treats and Desserts


Those with a sweet tooth can have a go at treats such as:

Banana Cream Pie

When discussing this dessert, we discuss Delmonico Steakhouse’s banana cream pie. Here, chef Emeril Lagasse created a pie that contains 3 pounds of banana (which adds up to more than ten fruits), a custard filling, caramel sauce, whipped cream, and chocolate.

Skillet Cinnamon Roll

This treat takes its name after its way of being served: that is, in a skillet. Large-scaled and covered in a sweet sauce, it is advisable that you cut this delicacy like a cake or a pizza for everyone to get a taste of the tasty center.

Take a slice, two, or the whole bunch at Sid’s Cafe, where this cinnamon roll is a trademark.

Bouchon Pastries

Among the foreign tastes in Las Vegas, you can try the French delicacies that inhabit the Bouchon Bakery in the Venetian Hotel. This bakery opened its doors due to Chef Thomas Keller’s efforts. Here, you can choose from a large variety of pastries (the traditional croissant and the bun, among others) and some Austrian-style viennoiserie (similar to pastries).

Filled with international culinary traditions and a wide variety of tastes, combinations, and ways of presenting food, Las Vegas’s food has a way of giving a twist to a traditional dish and making it its own. Enjoy this city’s renowned menus and everything this Nevada town offers.
